It wasn’t a full gallop. Actually, it was more of a trot as Band of Horses came to Nippertown with a casual, front-porch kind of acoustic sit-down concert in support of their new album, Acoustic at the Ryman, recorded live at the Nashville home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Sold-out weeks in advance, Sunday night’s concert at The Egg seemed to hit all the right notes with fans who applauded in recognition as soon as the band eased into nearly every song.
